This Winter season, why not give your best friend the gift of the written word with a new book? Sure, stylish gifts like a quartz roller or silky pajama set are always appreciated (hope my friends are reading this!) but is there anything more beautiful than a friend cracking open a book you gave her in 20 years time, immediately recalling the memories you’ve shared? Gifting a friend a good book is giving her laughs, new connections, wisdom, maybe a few cries, and a chance for introspection and self-reflection. Bonus points if you read the same book at the same time and you can discuss all of the plot points over Earl Grey tea, like a miniature book club (more bonus points if you give it a name). Books about youth and friendship, like Dolly Alderton’s Everything I Know About Love, are always great bets because your bestie can see your relationship reflected in the pages and you can truly be more thankful than ever to have each other.
